president obama. they're probably not sure about the united states. my hunch is as a result we've got some time. before 2013, again, i think the odds go at least even possibly higher. that either israel or quite conceivably the united states will feel compelled to act. that the risks and costs of all that of acting as great as they might be are potentially outweighed by the risks and costs of not acting. >> do you think that the united states is going to act? >> i think if the united states does act, it won't be about the ability to deter iran or not. i think it will be about the implications for other countries proliferating in the region. i think this president came to power talking about a global zero, wanting to actually get rid of nuclear weapons. if iran gets a nuclear weapon, saudi arabia is much more likely to get a nuclear weapon. and then you're looking at both egypt and turkey and the nuclearization of the entire region. so for this president, i think the decision to act would be more about the sense that if you get north korea getting a nuclear weapon and then iran getting a nu
strife. >>> also, romney and obama seem to agree on outsourcing. they both hate it, but actually they should both embrace it. i'll tell you why. but first here's my take. over the last week as we watched rage and protest in the muslim world, people have asked why it's happening and because we're in a campaign season, that question has become a political one. some republicans say it is president obama's policies that have produced this atmosphere. he has projected weakness, offered olive branches, and been naive. but think about it. had president obama kept 100,000 troops occupying iraq, would that have made people in the middle east happier with america? had he given a more combative speech three years ago, would that have made radical islamists stay at home last week? the truth is, president obama nor any american president has much to do with t outbreak of protests over the last two weeks. it might be instructive to recall that after the 9/11 attacks, many asked the question why is there so much anger in the arab world, why do they hate us, and many serious scholars and journal
the regulatory burdens that obama has put in and threatened to put in. you get rid of obama care -- >> but this is all rhetoric. you've got a plan as a practical matter. as i said, clinton raised taxes, he cut growth. bush had the biggest tax cuts in a generation and he got the weakest growth in 30 years. you get, all i'm saying is, as a matter of practical planning for the fiscal future of the united states, your answer can't be, yeah, we'll have stronger growth. yeah, if we grow at 6%, we don't need to do anything. everything is solvent, right? but i can't wish for that. we've got to plan realistically. >> we know that if you reduce capital gains taxes, you actually get more growth. if we go to full expensing for business investment, we'll get more investment. we need to have an immigration policy that brings both talent and numbers to the country. we need to have a territorial tax system so a trillion dollars that's overseas can come back here and create jobs and opportunities while here making the country stronger -- >> if you could wave a magic wand for the tax code, what wo
